Literacy in Tutor Time

Literacy in tutor time aims to enhance, develop and stretch our students to be fluent writers, readers and speakers in today’s society.

Year 7 and 8 students partake in various inter-tutor competitions throughout the year which include:

Spelling Bee, Designing a Reality T.V. show, Just a Minute, creating their own poems and World Book Day tweets.

Reading widely is encouraged through the Cheam Reading Challenge Blog, as well as through their Year 7 Learning to Learn lessons and in their Year 7 English lessons. By encouraging a holistic approach to reading, the students develop an appreciation for reading beyond their lessons.
